Conor McGregor has come under fire after telling his son to punch another child.
The UFC star shared a clip on Instagram with his 39 million followers, showing a father-and-son chat with Conor Jr.
But viewers were horrified when he instructed the three-year-old to hit another kid ‘in the mouth’.
Holding his medallion, the 32-year-old said: “That’s the McGregor family crown, champ.
“This is the McGregor family crest. It’s a lion’s head with a crown on it because you are a king, champ. We are kings.
“Bash anyone that says anything, you hear?”
Then he asked his son: “Did he hit you? Where did he hit you? Hit him back. Hit him in the mouth.
“He hit you in the back did he? Aim for the mouth champ. Hit him faster, that’s why we train.”
McGregor’s son was then told he’d need to do some ‘boxing training’ so he could defend himself in the future.
Unsurprisingly, the clip didn’t go down well with all of his followers.
One person wrote: “Dunno if teaching a kid hitting back is a good thing.”
Another added: “This is the definition of bad parenting.”
How many children does Conor McGregor have?
The UFC fighter shares Conor and his daughter, Croia, two, with his long-term girlfriend, Dee Devlin. The couple will welcome their third child later this year.
When is Conor McGregor’s next fight?

Poirier reportedly signed the contract last month. However, there’s been no word on whether or not McGregor has also agreed to the match.
